- The fund doesn’t have a predetermined monetary amount, Circle told CoinDesk, and has already deployed initial capital.
- “Circle’s mission is to raise global economic prosperity through the frictionless exchange of financial value. Achieving it is ambitious and will take a village of many, many people and projects and companies to develop the technologies, the products and protocols needed to get us there,” wrote Circle CFO Jeremy Fox-Geen in a blog post announcing the launch.
- “Through Circle Ventures, we will be now able to bring our financial capital to bear, support these compelling early stage companies in a new way, and accelerate their development and contributions to our shared mission,” Fox-Geen added.
The leader in news and information on cryptocurrency, digital assets and the future of money, CoinDesk is an award-winning media outlet that strives for the highest journalistic standards and abides by a strict set of editorial policies. In November 2023, CoinDesk was acquired by Bullish group, owner of Bullish, a regulated, institutional digital assets exchange. Bullish group is majority owned by Block.one; both groups have interests in a variety of blockchain and digital asset businesses and significant holdings of digital assets, including bitcoin. CoinDesk operates as an independent subsidiary, and an editorial committee, chaired by a former editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal, is being formed to support journalistic integrity.
